canada is trying to do. if you raise the bar on expectations, the school system will organize itself to jump over that higher bar. several years ago, this is what happened with "race to the top," they asked all the states to put high standards in place across the board. several years ago, michigan did that because that was what we were focused on, doubling the number of college graduates in michigan. we raised the bar at every single grade level. 2007 was the year the high school starts took effect. since 2005, when we started raising the bar k through 12 -- k through 8, we have seen math and reading scores increase every single grade. dropout rate has gone from 15% to 11%, just in two years we have every high schooler taking a college prep curriculum no matter where they live, in detroit, west bloomfield, all taking the same college prep curriculum. as a result of that, we have seen test scores increase, act scores up, 70% taking advanced placement classes. college enrollment is up. community college enrollment has increased by 35%. >> the way you grade this is, i'm hearing a lot of
states, but not exclusive of other population. we imagined it would look a bit like canada and the united states, france and germany, where people would be able to cross the border. the israelis could be able to shop in palestinian areas, palestinians coming over to the israeli side -- and it has been repeated recently -- palestinians are not opposed to jews living in a palestinian state. we recognize the jewish people have religious and historic ties that will be the palestinian state. there is no objection to the jews living in the palestinian state. are they going to live in there as a palestinian citizen, as israeli citizens, under what framework? this vision of two states with multi-ethnic population is moving back and forth, this has taken a beating since i was in negotiations. over the course of all the violence that has taken recently, specifically in israel, over two exclusive populations. i think there needs to be a conclusion in a two state solution that allows both jews and palestinians to have access to both countries. the more interaction there will be, the more peace will b
made as the canada. 4.5 million small businesses and individuals will be eligible to immediately write off more expenses. that may benefit ruth, who is opening another restaurant in alexandria, virginia. 2 million self-employed americans will be able to receive a new deduction for health insurance. we will be increasing the tax break for anyone looking to open up a business. that is a $10,000 deduction. it can help with discouraging startup costs. future prosperity depends on whether regreting an environment in which folks can take new ideas for products to market and generate new business. that is not just a challenge of government. it is a challenge that requires businesses, leaders, universities, and others across this country. the second thing this bill does is we are going to make more loans available to small business. right now, there is the waiting list for sba loans. these are people who are ready to hire or expand, who have been approved by their banks, who are waiting for this legislation to pass. when i sign this bill, their weight will be over. will be over.it [applause] v
canada and the california senate race. >> congress returns from break next week. here is a look at some of our prime time programming after obama's speech monday. watch town hall meetings with bernie sanders. they both talked about health care. >> i believe the plan is for this plan to fail. i know that this plan will fail. health insurance is going to be way too high. you will create adverse selection. anybody that is young and healthy, you will pay the fund in 2014 rather than spend $7,000 or $8,000. if you get sick, they have to cover you. it does not rise to $795 in 2016. what is going to happen? the healthy young people will not be in the insurance pool. what is cora to happen to the people over 40 who were sick question-what is going to happen to the people over 40 who are sick? alternately, the blanket to revert back and tell you that insurance does not work. -- they want it to refer back and tell you that insurance does not work. >> in my view, if we are serious about having a cost-effective, high-quality health care system which guarantees health care to every man and woman and

that the northern government has signed with china and others, canada, even, and others who have interest in the oil. those agreements are going to have to be looked at, both by the north and south. it's not a matter of the south taking over and saying we are going to start afresh. those are agreements that have to be honored, or maybe can be renegotiated with the new independent government, but that's an area where there's need for cooperation between the north and south. another issue is what do you do with the citizenship issue. northerners will live in the south after the vote, and southerners who live in the north. what is their status? we won't want a situation where there's ethnic cleansing or people pushed out of their homes because they are not now consider add northerner or southerner or citizen of that new country. those are important issues that have to be addressed. finally, the real challenge for the oil is corruption. there's corruption in the national congress party and in the sudan people's liberation movement. there needs to be greater transparency, and checks put in place so that

. canada's oil sands are one of the world's largest deposits, about eight times current u.s. oil reserves. it is preferable for the u.s. to process and use these oil resources than alternative foreign markets. recognizing this, as i indicated before, our company is investing $2.2 billion here in our detroit refinery to enable us to process crude oil derived from canadian oil sands and to clean dress protection tools and other prada products that our consumers need. that project is the largest project going on in the state of michigan today. there is substantial opposition to importing this oil because its current intensity is slightly higher than that of most conventional oils. we are developing and implementing technology that can and will solve that problem. i use that point to transition to the file of the three key elements of an energy security strategy, which is the need for innovation and new technologies. as i stated earlier, technology and innovation are vitally important in increasing the supply of into, moderate demand, and protecting the environment. there is a tremendous amou
